Degrees and Certifications:
Dara Velasquez, I have been working in the field of Child Development since 2003. I started my schooling at Moorpark College where I worked and volunteered at their child development center. I received my AA in Liberal Arts and my AS in Child Development with emphasis in infants and toddler studies. I received my Bachelors of Science in Child Development from the University of La Verne. I love working with young children and their families I find it special to be able to be a small part of your educational journey. I believe that children learn through hands on experiences and positive encouragement. I look forward to getting to know your child and your family over the school year.
Agnes Aragón, I am from Managua, Nicaragua in Central America. I’ve been living in Camarillo for more than 30 years. I have been working for the school system in Camarillo for over 24 years, including over 12 years here at El Jardín. I enjoy my work here very much because of the satisfaction I feel when I see the children developing physical, social, emotional, and cognitive skills.
Sandra Shiguematsu, I am pleased to be your child’s Spanish teacher. I am native from Guadalajara, Mexico and I am very proud to share my language and my culture to your child. I graduated from Oxnard College with my Associates Degree in Child Development in 2007 and have been teaching since 2008. One of my favorite parts of being in the classroom is singing and dancing with the children. Having the opportunity to watch the children learn and grow is one of the best parts of my job.
